Calvin gets stitches

We went to Tybee island one day when Lindsey and her girls were in town. Without our husbands it is kind of an ordeal for us to get all 4 of our toddlers + their crap out to the beach. We had been there for maybe 5 minutes when Calvin started playing on these big rocks. He plays on them often when we go to the beach with Dal, but I went over to tell him to stop. On his way back he fell on a rock and landed straight on his head. He cried for like 30 seconds, he was much more upset about having to leave the beach.

Sooooo we packed up all of our crap and toddlers and took them back to the car + drove to Dal's office. It was nice that Dallin could just stitch him up there so we didn't have to wait at an ER. He cried a little during the shot, but was a super champ most of the time. There was a super nice medic there that helped and made Calvin feel better. 
This was 5 seconds before he fell...

We made Calvin take a picture of us before we left, haha

Easter with the Hunters

We had the best Easter ever because the Hunters came to visit!

 The Sunday before they got here we went to an Easter egg hunt with kids from Calvin's preschool at the prettiest gardens + in this old, charming southern house. I loved it!

Calvin had been counting down until the Hunters for weeks! We had fun going to the Wormsloe Plantation and exploring downtown Savannah with them for a couple of days, then we drove up to Hilton head and stayed at a beach condo for the rest of the weekend. The weather was perfect and we had the best time.

Springtime in Savannah!

We have had such a great past few months here in Georgia. I got out of the weird emotional funk that I was in, Dal had lots of time to spend with us, and Savannah is such an awesome city!

The Taylors came and stayed with us for a weekend! We went down to jacksonville, FL for a day and it was lovely. We love our Taylor family.

St. Patrick's Day is a HUGE deal here. People were talking about it for weeks before! There is a huge parade downtown. We got there 2 hours before it started and still had to park a mile away. It was fun, the kids loved it.

The Borups came to visit + it was so fun to have them here! We love them + Calvin is obsessed with Henry. We explored downtown, went to wormhole, spent a day at Hilton head, and had fun watching the kids play together. Mae got hand, food, and mouth while they were here which put a damper on some of our plans, but I was super grateful that henry didn't get it! Also, right when we were leaving to take them to the airport, Mae locked herself in the car with the keys. I called the military police to come help and they sent about a million guys in uniform + a fire truck and 3 police cars. It was ridiculous and embarrassing. And Jaynee had to take them to the airport. Never a dull moment with Mae!
